PDX lunch for large (80 people) group

I am assuming we'll have to rent out a restaurant for such a large group. I've never done this before, so wanted to get some opinions from people. We are looking at downtown/Pearl mainly, maybe ethnic...Any and all suggestions appreciated. Anyone have good experiences with restaurants in the area with large groups? What kind of prices should we expect (per person, and is the rental fee separate than the per person price?)?
Thanks in advance for your help!

    Try bridgeport brewpub + bakery in the Pearl (1313 NW Marshall). They have an event space upstairs that holds 120...

        Thanks for the recs. I've been to a private holiday party at Bridgeport, and it was pretty nice. Haven't been there since the remodel. I guess I was hoping for something less pub-y and more ethnic. Any thoughts?

          After doing some research I am wondering what people think of Typhoon or Dragonfish? Also, Karam and Alexis? Thanks!

            I really like Typhoon on SWBroadway..a very pretty space, great service and the food has always been good.
            Dragonfish is not in the same catagory in my opinion. We have had lousy service, mediocre food and had to deal with a hostess with a really rotten attitude.
            So I won't recommend them.
